This guy (girl?) is the State Bird of New Mexico. At least one family lives in my neighborhood, and they walk on the block walls, eat lizards in the woodpile, make very interesting sounds, and just entertain in general.
This one was sitting outside my bedroom window this morning, but I could not get a photo. That will teach me to wash the windows more often!
He didn’t really want to be photographed, but let me get this one before he ran across the road and up the street, using the sidewalk!
